If the damage doesn't go all the way around the trunk it is probably best to leave it.

Alternatively, you could try wrapping moss around it to keep it moist and help the bark to regenerate.

Rotting of the wood underneath is less of an issue than ensuring that there is sufficient cambium left to transport water up the tree.
