Poor tree. If you replace it you might consider putting a wire cage that is a few inches larger diameter around it each Winter, and that is taller than your usual snow depth. Good luck..........
If the bark is missing all the way round, God rest the tree.
Here in West Tennessee my Maple tree is victim to sapsucker woodpeckers. But only in the winter so it can recover during the summer.
