I have a similar situation here, adjacent to square miles of
undeveloped forest but with 115 kV power lines crossing my property.
They have never caused a problem, unless you count the time a 150-foot
fir tree fell and brought down the span and set the woods on fire.

I would take a rig out there in someone's mobile and listen for myself
before making a decision.
