Off hand, if the green areas are irregular and sort of "blotchy," it sounds kind of like chromatic noise. This is unlikely though, unless the original pictures were severly underexposed and then brightened after the fact or taken at a very high ISO setting.

As rinniethehun suggests, post a few of the best examples.

There are several possibilities that could be the source of the greenish cast. The first I can think of is a slight WB problem, which is only obvious in dark areas. If you shot the pictures in RAW, you should be able to go back an correct it. Even with jpegs, a little post-processing can take care of the problem.

Another possiblity is a mismatch of color space between the camera and software you printed from. If you use Photoshop, you should be able to convert before printing.
