Your pictures are not too good, so it is difficult to see how did your tank look like.
1 take picture when it is dark in the room. The only light allowed is your tank lights.
2 do not use flash on your camera.
Think about replacing background. Photo wall paper with water plant doesnt look well. It is far from being natural.
Black or dark blue paper, paint or even black plastic bin bag looks better.
I don't think that wood is source of your algaes. Most of us have them in our tanks.
Usually algaes grows in every fresh tank.
