I have a large Coconut Palm that has holes from Woosdpeckers and holes from tree trimmer spikes Sad Should the holes be filled with anything and will they kill it?? It is a really cool bent palm and I hate to lose it. Thanks.

I wouldn't patch the holes with anything. The palms will take care of the problem by sealing them off from the inside of the trunk. You'll still see the holes but the palm should suffer no ill effects.
