I found this feature particularly common on lime - probably due to the
soft and spongy character of the bark - although I have seen it on oak
while the bark is still smooth.

Has anyone noticed fairly manic behaviour by Greater Spotted Woodpeckers
making many regimented horizontal lines of cuts into tree trunks?

The internet and literature suggest they are sap-sucking rather than
looking
for insects.
