Saw this dust ...!

Anyone know what is happening here? 

Pictured this Wednesday near the corner of Harefield and Breakspears Roads, this maple tree (Acer saccharinum) appears to have been hollowed and then flushed out by the rain, possibly by some sort of borer. 

We welcome any suggestions as to what may have caused this and what it means for the tree. Of course, we are always interested in pictures and reports of other street trees in distress so please let us know.

PS. We're meeting with our Green Scene colleagues next week to look at it more closely.
