The bedrock geology of Woodbury consist mostly of Ordovician metamorphic rocks - schists and granofels of the Ratlum Mountain and Taine Mountain formations. Exposed in the southeast corner of town are gneisses of the Waterbury Dome window and most of the northeast corner is underlain by the Devonian Nonewaug Granite. In contrast are east-dipping arkosic sandstones and basalts deposited in the northern part of the Pomperaug Mesozoic basin, which underlies the central and south-central part of town - generally south from Woodbury center, east of the Weekeepeemee River and west of the Pomperaug River. This terrane includes the Orenaug Hills, underlain by Jurassic basalts stratigraphically equivalent to those in the much larger Hartford Basin (located 15 miles east) and heavily quarried for aggregate. The two rivers flow mostly along lowlands eroded into the sandstones on either side of the basalt flows.

Coordinates are for the intersection of state Route 47 and U. S. Route 6.
