Very hard to be accurate when there are no leaves yet.
Please can you add further clear pics showing the leaves when they are open.

I agree ...and it would also be helpful to know the city/state/region/country where your tree is growing.

The growth pattern and the one leaf I think I see resembles a Crape Myrtle, but the bark does not...? Do post more pictures when it leafs out.

That's exactly what I thought. And I agree, the bark is completely wrong for crape myrtle.

Looks like opposite arrangement of those emerging buds - points to Maple as a likely suspect - but bark is unusual for commonly planted maple species.

Other than that, answering the "where in the world" question will help a lot.
