Bark is completely missing.   lots of breakage. trees are very tall and lifeless.  

The holes are elongated and cover the entire tree, almost look like a pattern every eight inches around the tree in straight lines

thank you

Based on your description the holes were made by woodpeckers.  They are seeking and finding tasty morsels in the dead tree.

You would have to have the borer or white pine weevil identified to be able to use the right spray for it.  If this is a very large tree you might need a specialist that deals with trees.  It could be woodpecker damage....if you hear a knocking sound....they usually only go after a tree is dead or dying.  Sorry to hear about this problem.
