There are many types of ants. One that you might find on your trees is carpenter ants. This article has information on dealing with those: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/home-remedies-carpenter-ants.htm
This article has some more information on other species of ant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/get-rid-of-ants.htm
Also, the ants may be traveling into your trees to feed on honeydew of aphids or scale, so you may want to treat for these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/homemade-aphid-control-a-natural-way-to-kill-aphids.htm
