Christmas Tree Colors Optical Illusion

Are the two Christmas trees in the image below exactly the same shade of green or does one appear to be darker than the other?

Christmas Tree Optical Illusion

While the upper Christmas tree appears to be significantly darker than the lower tree, they are indeed the same shade of green.  When a color is placed between darker colors (like the vertical stripes in the image above), it has a tendency to look darker.  Conversely, it has a tendency to look lighter when placed between lighter colors.
