I agree with Steve, Lightning will do that. I had a Hemlock in my yard 80 plus feet tall that got hit by lightning and it shredded the bark off esp at the bottom 3rd.  I believe the intense heat of the electric shock explodes the wet cambian layer just under the bark. Other wise it must have been a very big giant Porcupine!
