On June 16, 2020 the Town of Islip passed a resolution adding Index F to the planning code making it mandatory for commercial developers to plant honey bee friendly trees and shrubs throughout the township of Islip due to the shortage of pollen and nectar for the bees.

Tom Santorelli, beekeeper and owner of Tomaso’s worked with the Town to get this new code passed.
