I am working on some WWI Germans for the late war period and was wondering if the Jagers still wore the greener tunic in the later years as they did in the early years of the war.

Haven't been able to find anything on it.

The German Army replaced uniforms only when they needed to be. So late war may still find troops in the M-07/10 Feldrock, but as far as I have been able to determine neither the M1915 Bluse nor the Vereinfachte Feldrock were ever made in the jäger field green. That the only way to tell the difference from a Jäger and an infantryman in 1917-1918 would be by his shoulder boards.

It was a mixed picture, as mentioned by AICUSV. You will see the same with dismounted cavalry units for example. Late war, some were still wearing their cavalry uniform while others in the same unit wore the standard tunics.
