Sometime after that, he hopes, a more attractive structure will be built around the tree to protect it while also allowing the public to see the tree. He pictures a wood or metal structure, with glass along with screening that blocks the citrus psyllid but allows the tree to breathe and photosynthesize. That could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and would have to be approved by the Riverside City Council, he said.

Helluva screen house!
