What is this on my maple tree

npochayJune 21, 2014

These little red dots have appeared on my maple tree's leaves. Some leaves are completely covered with these red things. Do i need to cut the baby tree down? Is there a way to get rid of them without having to cut it down?

NBD - totally cosmetic!! Cutting down the tree for this would be like cutting off your arm if you got a bruise on it :-))
