Can Japanese Acer survive this damage?

Can Japanese Acer survive this damage?

We have a mature Japanese Acer that the "gardener" decided to prune. He has almost sawn through the main trunk at the top. Is there any way that the tree will still be able to pass nutrients to the top of the trunk, maybe if it's bandaged or sealed in some way, or has it been damaged beyond repair?

Is it possible to transplant an Acer?; this one is growing at the base of a rockery and is about 4-5 feet high.

Thank you for any advice.
