I agree

I also agree, sure looks like Quaking Aspen. Here are two photos from our database:

It's also called "Trembling Aspen" and there are some good leaf, bark and entire tree photos on this page for comparison too:

Thanks everyone!
When the wind blows through the canopy it makes the ocean wave crashing sound.

Upon inspection, the leaf stems (petioles) allows for the leaves to move quite freely and smack into each other to create this sound. Other leaf stems do make sound since they are round, like a rigid straw, but these leaf stems are flat, like a floppy ribbon.
