Ill start by saying that Thicket Elemental is not Modern legal if you are looking to play this deck in a Modern setting.
The biggest problem with a deck like this is consistency. You might find yourself playing through games and think, "Oh man if only I had drawn that one card...." To try and avoid this you need to condense your list so that you have mostly 3-4 copies of cards you're playing. This will increase your chances of drawing these cards in matches. If you have 4 Elvish Visionarys in your deck instead of 2, you will natural draw them more frequently.
Being mono green means you can play some pretty powerful cards that other decks don't get to play, you should take advantage of that! Cards like Leatherback Baloth are very difficult to cast in decks that have multiple colors. In yours though, it's all too easy. Other cards that like being in mono green decks are Garruk's Companion, Kalonian Tusker, Aspect of Hydra, Dungrove Elder, Kalonian Twingrove etc...
A sample list could look something like this:
Remember we want multiples of 3 to 4 to increase our consistency and want to make sure we have a good curve.
Now this didn't take much thought so it's not a refined, or perhaps even good, list but shows that you can still have small numbers of certain cards, especially if they are legendary, but mostly want mulitples of 3-4 and a good curve. As our curve climbs we have less and less cards (11 2CMC cards and 3 5CMC cards), this should keep our hand from being clunky and full of uncastables. Anyway, I wont say what cards you should cut and which you should add more of, I think a bit of that has to do with what you already have. I hope this helps!

You should probably be playing Avatar of the Resolute over Garruk's Companion. Even though it can't get bonus counters with the current state of your deck, it has both reach and trample for the same mana cost and the same stats. Nice and unique deck! +1

Using Pongify on your own creatures is a strategy you should stay away from. This is because you are two for oneing yourself; you are spending 2 cards to get 1, and whats worse is that that 1 creature is only a 3/3 with no abilities. For the same CMC of (Pongify+1CMC creature) you could just play Kalonian Tusker or Garruk's Companionat the cost of 1 card istead of 2. It may feel "free" to Pongify an undying creature since it comes back, but you are still eliminating 1/2 of your undying creature and still trading 1 1/2 cards for 1.

legomanalec I asked on reddit for help also and another guy said the Urza lands should be taken out too. So I was going to remove them, I actually was going to put Exploration into the deck but I saw that it wasn't legal in Modern, unless what I saw was wrong? That's why Explore actually ended up in there haha. Which creatures would you recommend I sacrifice to introduce more lower drops? I was going to (after the advice I got on reddit) play 4 Kalonian Tusker and 4 Leatherback Baloth and take out Garruk's Packleader and Garruk's Companion and try and take out a couple of the bigger ones while adding more copies of one or two of them.

I took a look at this deck, was expecting to see maximum greed with colors or weird casting cost dudes to sneak into play off Unburial Rites and Collected Company. Instead, you have Golden Hind and Garruk's Companion??
Also, please put some linebreaks in the description. You may need double line breaks for them to actually show up. Have fun playing though!

You might have already considered these, but I think they are good: Predator Ooze, Kalonian Tusker and especially Garruk's Companion with Aspect of Hydra. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is face melting good too. Nice brew, I got a mono g devotion too that I love.
