Citrus bark damaged. Should I paint the damaged limbs or prune? Will the tree survive if I leave as is?

The upper limbs of all our citrus has been removed. Possums in the area. Will the tree survive if I paint the affected areas with bitumen?

Considering the amount of bark damage, the limb is unlikely to survive, best to prune it back to the main trunk.
