What are these bugs on my cherry tree?

Can anyone identify these bugs and suggest a treatment for them.

Scale, a massive infestation. You need to do something about that ASAP, they can kill the tree with toxins they excrete as they feed. Probably some kind of horticultural oil spray AND a soil drench of imadicloprid (Merit, Bayer Advanced Tree and Shrub/Bayer Advanced Fruit and Vegetable all contain this as the active ingredient).

That's the worse infestation I've ever seen.
