    @Noah Williams🦌: From your description, it is possible that the holes were made by a woodpecker. Woodpeckers are known for pecking holes in trees in search of insects or to create nesting cavities. However, without seeing the holes or any other evidence, it's difficult to say for sure. Other possibilities could include squirrels, which sometimes create small holes in trees to store food, or even insect activity. If you could provide more information or a photo, it would help in identifying the culprit. SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

    Yeah it’s definitely a wood pecker. I remember learning that yellow bellied sap suckers will drill holes in straight lines. I’ve seen a few trees where 4-6 ft sections were lined with holes

    I agree with Brian. Yellow-bellied sapsucker
