looks like woolly aphids. They live of the treesap, so I would call them harmful.

You can spend some time every day picking them off by hand, or you can try blasting them off with a hose, or try a mixture of soap and water, or alcohol, or go with a chemical system.

The chemical is the only thing that works for me. Initacloprid .22% from Bonidemin the US. There are many others that should work fine.
