I am searching for a green folice to plant around trees in my yard.
What are some names I should look for?

Since you are planting under a tree, you don't want your evergreens to get too large. For this reason, I'd choose a dwarf boxwood, mountain laurel or holly. Green Velvet boxwood grows only 3' high and wide; Ivory Tower Holly grows only 2' tall and wide; Tinkerbell mountain laurel grows only 18 inches high and wide. Or you could plant heather, lavender or rosemary. All are evergreen plants. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
