This is not good. It sounds like they meant to kill it. If the cambium has been removed there's little short of bridge grafting that can be done. And that's probably only worth trying if the tree is really important to you.

If there is intact cambium (a green layer just beneath the bark) you just might get away with wrapping some moss and hessian around the wound and keeping it moist. But generally, I'd say the prognosis is bad.
