The biggest danger seems to be from disease getting into the wounds.  
The aforementioned hawthorn had about half it's trunk killed from rot 
in the torn up bark.

  Sounds like you have a sapsucker at work.  For  the uninitiated, it's 
a bird that drills the trees like a woodpecker,  then drinks the sap.  
I've seen hawthorns here with bark reduced to lace by them.
