What kind of leaf?
What kind of leaf?

 
oak leaf
If I remember correctly, I picked this off the ground from under an oak tree in my yard, so oak leaf.

 
White Oak?
This leaf looks like an unusually small and atypical shaped specimen of White Oak (Quercus alba). If you can post views of other leaves from under that tree, it might be helpful.
