Pergola Dilemma

Lately we've had problems with the trees in our yard. Half the branches are dead and we had an arborist come out and recommend 50% of our trees need to be cut down due to fungus. We have this great old apple tree next to our outdoor patio and it gives great coverage from the sun but it's looking pretty bad and hasn't grown any apples the last 2 years. So we're debating whether or not to cut it down. If we do cut it down, I would like to build a pergola to give us some protection from the sun. I know. I complain about the rain and want the sun, but then I complain that the sun is too bright. So that's why I thought a pergola might be a good compromise.

As it is currently...

How I'd like to see it...
