We noticed that there are small black/brown eggs/mites all over the bark of these trees which have red leaves.
Can you guide us how to treat them?
Warm Regards,

I can't tell what the pests are without seeing them, but are you sure they an insects and not fungal spores? You can try spraying with insecticidal soap if they actually are eggs and mites. I think the problem is worth investigating further. Try taking a close up photo and then visiting your cooperative extension office. Helpful folks there can diagnose the problem for you.
