The Tree Riddle...?

Okay, I'm the type of person; if something tickles my mind then I need answers or I battle to sleep! So Harties'ers, please help me come to rest???

At the guesthouse where I stay, there are these magnificent old palm trees; beauties to behold. But I noticed that at each one's base there is a natural looking hole or slot on opposites of the trunk. I need to know where the holes came from?

A previous reader commented that it's a type of weavel (bug) that causes this damage, but the story then is; it kills the tree.

Now these ones I photographed are perfectly healthy and doing very well - so why the holes at their bases???
