What's Wrong With This Tree?

On the same day we hiked out to the spring we came across this tree.

It is covered with these burls/galls/wounds.

A little closer.

While the bark kind of looks like a pine, it isn't.  In the first photo you can see the base has a normal bark.

Even closer.

Each of the wounds is open.

Here's a side view showing the elevation of 2 of the wounds.

Does anyone know what is going on?
