I have a 3 year old Willow Tree and noticed that there are lots of Ants running up and down the trunk, also some of the leaves have black spots on them. Is this bad and does it need to be treated?

I have put a sticky band around the trunk in an attempt to remove the ants, but are they actually bad for the tree?
