It may change the overall shape of the tree but yes, it will recover. You may want to find out what kind of caterpillar it is that is eating the tree, and keep them off. I don't think it will do any serious damage to your tree. In fact, you might find that the tree grows back even more than before when it gets damaged. This is common as well.
