These snakes are non-venomous that are very common in are area due to its cold temperature. They feed mostly on rats (but i can't really tell). I have not seen any of them climbing a tree. They are dark green likes to come out especially during rainy days.

I'm not quite sure if it's Gonyosoma oxycephalum. I don't see any common behavior that they share.

I can't really tell from the photographs, but one species you might look at (try to recollect the details of your spotting) is Gonyosoma oxycephalum.
