I suspect they are Juniper scale, but without a really close macro shot they are hard to diagnose. I had this on one of my Blauuws. It eventually weakens the tree and parts can die off. Best to spray it with a mild detergent solution I think. A couple of sprays, a fortnight apart, with that sorted mine out anyway.

This is definitely Juniler scale. Make sure you follow Kev's instruction and pay special attention to the underneath,as this is where most of the critters lurk.
