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.

Those leaves are "toothed". Not sure about Carpinus, kind of early. Where is this located? That might help identify it.

It's a hornbeam, Carpinus betulus. That leaf pattern is referred to as double serrated with impressed veins - aka corrugated and toothed :-)
