Our peach tree has some damage on the top surface of one of its lateral 
branches. It's about a 3 inch section where the bark is gone. It almost 
looks like it has crumbled away (sun damage?) I don't see any insect 
holes. There are lots of ants on the tree. This is a tree that has 
experienced a lot of decline in the last few years, though it's only 
maybe 10 or 12 years old. A lot of the top has died and I've pruned it back.

A couple years ago there was some serious damage to the bark on one side 
of the trunk - about a 10 inch section where the bark was destroyed.  
Right now there is also a small patch of new damage on the trunk, maybe 
a 2 inch section where the bark is gone.

Any ideas what's happening?  Thanks.
