The simplest answer would be that they absorb all the other frequencies of light and reflect the green light. It seems the chlorophyll can turn all other frequencies of light into something usable, like sugar to feed their growth.

Wondering Why Most Plants are Green.
Have you ever wondered why most plants are green? Why couldn't they be red, or orange, or yellow. . . wait a minute. They are. But only in the Fall when they change colors and then fall to the ground. But why are most leaves and plant life predominantly green when they are growing and healthy?
I must say, that I think nature picked a soothing color. At least it is soothing to me. I feel the most relaxed when I am in a cool, green forest. What about you? Do you think nature picked a good color to paint the trees, grass, moss, etc. with? Now, I hope you all have yourselves a really great day, you hear?
