We had part of our viburnum shrub die and we are trying to figure out if the squirrels did the damage to the bark over the winter.

The holes were made by sapsuckers. Their feeding doesn't usually kill branches or trunks, but may have contributed. Click here for more info: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/plants/soft-scales-trees-and-shrubs
