What is this on my maple tree

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?

Yes, that is leaf gall. Dont cut your tree down.

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