What Am I?

"I’m green but I’m not a leprechaun
I have lights but I’m not a car
I have a skirt but I’m not a girl
I have things hanging on me but I’m not a clothes hanger
I have branches but I’m not a bank
I have needles but no thread" :)

How is this possible?

There is a story that a man and not a man
Saw and did not see a bird and not a bird
Perched on a branch and not a branch
And hit him and did not hit him with a rock and not a rock.
