I believe so, yes. If you have ever tried to compost something like broad bean stems that are looking lush and green. they become very woody and take a huge long time to bread down. They need to be bashed, chopped small and split before composting.

Do greens eventually become browns?
I mean if you have a pile of nitrogen based plant material like green grass and it is dried out does it become carbon based material.
