Post a picture of the whole tree for reference, leaves alone may not always get a good answer.

No idea, I would guess some kind of oak and probably be wrong. Is this a native tree? That could narrow possibilities down significantly.

Yah, it's hard to tell from just the leaves. Might be a Poplar of some sort. Looks similar to a Grey Poplar, except for the strange red rim on the leaves.
