I have a young flowering crab tree and my gardener has lacerated the bark near the ground right around the tree. Should I try to repair it? If yes, how?

Clean up any ragged edges and allow the air to circulate. Do not wrap the wound or apply any wound dressing.
Watch for any signs of insects or disease in the open wound. It should began to heal naturally.
