It could be a tent caterpillar?
Are there any masses of silk like threads within the branches of the tree?
If they are tent caterpillars they retreat to those silky structures and night. You could make a little torch dipped in kerosene and light it and burn them out.
You could blast them out of the tree with water but they might end up attacking something else.
