Do you know if the wood was summer or winter harvested ?
Stand more chance of retaining bark if it was winter harvested.

Either way apply thin CA glue to the Bark-Sapwood Boundary to strengthen the bond.

I just liberally coat Bark with sanding sealer, gets in all the nooks and crannies and helps bond any loose particles. (also disguises any CA stains)
