Split in young redbud bark

Young redbud planted this spring had tight guy wires attached. When they were removed on Sunday, the bark split. It looks like the bark was pealed off. Is it related to the guy wire removal or possibly a growth spurt with watering during this excessively hot summer. It is planted in the open with no other tress or structures around it.
