Tree Help

This morning I woke up and I had a rather large branch down at this tree, after further inspection there's some other things going on that I am not familiar with.

Can anyone provide insight on to what happened to this tree/branch.

One More Image (Saw Dust). Thanks for any help!

You've got some kind of boring insect infestation. Contact a nursery or your local extension agent for more information about what the specific insect is and what to treat it with.

picture 1: I have no idea of what I'm looking at except maybe a tattooed arm.

picture 2: Sapsucker damage.

picture 3: Most likely, indication of borer damage, but as with the first picture, it's not real clear. Were you unable to get a closer-up picture for some reason?

RE: Tree Help

It appears to be in the process of dieing. What type of tree is it?
