Just noticed some unhealthy looking growth on a persimmon that we put in the ground in Spring 2019.  Unsurprisingly, the tree did not put on much top growth in 2019, though coming into this summer it was still looking floppier than we might hope.  Leaves came in fine though and have mostly looked good all season.  It started putting on some upright growth well into summer though and while taking a closer look at one of the new branches to see if it was rubbing against an existing branch, I saw that it was fairly riddled with holes or cankers.  Wondering if this is recognizable to anyone as a known fungus, (or insect?), and whether the tree will be ok.

For what it's worth, the tree is planted in an elevated part of our yard in an area with decent soil for Portland

I am guessing that you have an Asian persimmon tree.   I have Americans. I have never noticed this effect.
