Bob, you may want to call your county extension service and speak with either a horticulturist or an arborist. Alot of times, you'll see a tree with a big bare spot along the trunk where the bark has healed. As long as the tree is not completely girdled by the wound and part of the cambium layer of bark is intact, the tree potentially can survive. The problem is keeping the wound from getting infected. Someone in extension should be able to evaluate the situation for you. Good luck!
