This is caused probably by the eastern juniper bark beetle.  The insect interferes with the cambium layer and so the tree is not sure if it should make bark or wood, so it makes a combination.  Can you see some small holes?

Can you post some close-ups showing just a few of the spots?

You have access to some real experts here -- WoodDoc, WDH, and others -- just need to provide them with info.
