Woodpecker Birds safe Trees

Did you know that woodpeckers help to save the trees? They only make holes in sick parts of trees and the location where the hole is and the combination of nesting material they use will trigger the healing process inside the tree after the breeding season is over (unless a grey squirrel occupies the hole which will start to destroy the tree again).
