It would appear to be either a Northern Red Oak, or a Shumard Oak.
A better photo of one good leaf would be helpful, as well as a photo
of the bark. The Northern Red lives from Maine to Wisconsin to Georgia
(not to mention Canada). Shumard runs from the mid-atlantic to the
gulf coast and as far west as Texas.
