I noticed a big chuck of bark fell off my silver maple last fall. Upon inspection of the tree this spring, I found that on one of the main branches of the tree the bark has peeled off almost all of the way around the tree in a section that's about a foot in length. There appears to be a bore hole in the area of the damage. How do I treat?
