Tree peonies are notoriously difficult to propagate, ergo, the high prices. 
Chance of success is very small but anything can be worth a try.

In the past, it was considered to be important to apply a wound dressing. 
Currently, the advice to orchardists here is to leave the wound or cut open. 
It will heal more quickly.  Apparently the dressing usually traps pathogens
underneath and provides them with an incubator like setup.  
I really think the best you vcan do is stand back and hope.  These are very
tough plants and I am sure that in time the damage will not be  evident.

Good luck
