In my experience, apples are among the most vigorous of my fruit trees. 
I have some experience with large wounds on apple trunks.

On 2 inch caliper trunks, two of my trees had wounds at least 3/4 of the 
diameter of the trunk. I wanted the trees, so I watched and waited. 
Three years later, they are 100 healed. The trees are bearing well.

If the branches are valuable to you, you may wish to wait and see.
