Unhappy water stain on unfinished wood

My husband and I just had a window seat installed which is comprised of unfinished wood that we were waiting to stain. Now I have a large water stain which has turned dark green. I tried to sand it out but it remains. Is there any thing I can do to get rid of it before be stain the bench? Please help!

After it dries, try some bleach 25% in water for only as long as it takes to change the green color to tan, then rinse thoroughly. After it dries, evaluate the need for another treatment. The long term effect of the discoloration may not allow staining with the same degree of uniformity that you have come to expect.
