Poplar is Green and White. Palo Verde is very green, but only found in the deserts and usually not in any kind of sizes for lumber. I’ve seen green analine dye used before to get a really deep shade of green.

Pistachio has green tones, but is not completely green, some olive wood can also have a green tone… both not the easiest wood to get hold o tho’... a dye might be your best bet… good luck!
