At least in my experience if woodpeckers are going for the tree they are already on their way out. Maybe its time to start looking at the trees and planning a selective cutting / envisioning a new canopy?

Yes, I know they don't eat the wood. They just destroy the heck out of the tree to get to the inside. I have seen the smaller holes in trees before just never seen the big giant caverns they made. I will just need to keep a close eye on the trees and keep track if the tree's health. and take it down if needed. I would rather keep them or course.
