The great thing about Gimp is there is always another way.

Have to confess, my first thoughts were with the G'mic plugin but maybe a better way for your specific case is 

Convert the image to indexed with a small number of colours
Edit the colour map so anything non green is (say) white
Back to RGB mode and colour-to-alpha to remove the white.
