Picked these from a tree today. They look like Ruffles chips. What do you call this pattern anyway? Ruffled? Anyone know what tree it might belong to? Thanks.

Here is a link that might be useful: Carpinus
Those leaves are "toothed". Not sure about Carpinus, kind of early. Where is this located? That might help identify it.
It's from Redmond, WA
Oh, maybe bboy will stop by and take a look ....
It's a hornbeam, Carpinus betulus. That leaf pattern is referred to as double serrated with impressed veins - aka corrugated and toothed :-)
Thank you for solving the mystery and sharing your expertise, gardengal. Have a good day. =)
