In October 2020, the Town Council passed a resolution to be designated as a Bee City. A natural part of the Woodstock Tree Board, we promote native pollinator plantings to support our bee populations thus sustaining our environment and food supply.
Pest Management to Support Pollinators
Pollinators also thrive with integrated pest management. We are currently in the process of developing an Integrated pest management plan. Wherever possible, Woodstock public works is dedicated to using environmentally sound practices on our landscaping that promotes the health of the plant and protects our native bee population. We endorse the principles and practices set forth in the Virginia Cooperative Extension’s 2021 Pest Management Guide. The Town's Integrated Pest Management Plan can found here.
