I always just use leaf green for "christmas tree green" colors. I just add more color until it reaches the intensity I want. I use americolor gels.

I know it's probably to late to help for this project, but for future reference, if you have olive green, it means there is to much brown (or red) in it. Remember that blue plus yellow make green. To get the christmas green you need to keep adding these colors until you get where you want.
