Wilton's Moss green looks more olive green to me, either that or juniper green.

Ditto. Wilton Moss and Juniper are great olive green shades.

If you don't have those you can color your icing with lemon yellow and add a little violet. Sounds weird, but yes it works. Just did it a couple days ago

I think the tree on my last cake is olive green. I just added some yellow on green to get that lime green color and then I added brown.
