Question on Bark Removal ?

Hello Everyone - Happy Thanksgiving!

I was planning on removing the bark on my cedar slab this afternoon, but after taking a closer look, there is a branch that extends from bark into the slab that cannot be removed without creating a cavity. I'm now wondering whether I should try to preserve the bark as opposed to removing it. Or would it be best just to remove the bark around the branch. Just looking for opinions on this. I attached a couple of pictures which will hopefully illustrate what I'm talking about. Thank you !

I'd keep that to showcase how trees grow.
