Ask AnnMarie; she's studied arboriculture.
I think that when they were logging, they dropped a tree top on it. It somehow survived and the thing that was on top of it was either removed or rotted away. The result is what you see today. Here's another view; it shows that the top is misformed, too. I really like the tree.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
