It depends a lot on the species, the amount of expansion/contraction it’s going to experience, the shape of the outer wood connected to the bark, and the cut of the wood.

I’ve had bark that I had to essentially chisel off after drying and some that just fell off from the same log. Personally, I really don’t trust it to stay on all that much. But, if dried and cut properly and finished properly, it can stay on there for a long time.
