It looks like it has been hacked with an axe. Very odd and under the marks there are like deep grooves in a circle. Not sure if tree surgeons have hacked it, either way the tree is showing signs of dying, with dead branches and there are also plenty of nitrogen loving lichens. Can't recognise Ash decline, there is no bleeding. It is definitely odd.
