The past few weeks there is a lot going on back there. I called the administration building in our community (there's an HOA, it's a large, planned, gated community) and they said that the power company was doing some work.
There seems to be a road behind my house now that was created, and every morning bright and early trucks and machinery and noise, lots of noise. They just started for the day already.
WTH am I going to be looking at when they're done?
The good news - once they were done the "wild" grew back and we pretty much wouldn't even know they had been back there.
I might call Public Works in the community to get more details.
I'd try calling the power company's regional office, maybe...or depending on how far away all trucks and such are, I might mosey down and ask the people working what's up.
Periodically here the power company goes through and butchers the trees within the power line easements. They also lease timber harvesting rights out for land they own. If you're not 100% certain on the property ownership behind you, I'd check out your local tax assessor's database and see what you can find out. Usually there will be a 'map view' where you can start off your property, then click adjacent parcels to determine who owns what.
I hope it turns out to be a mere tempest in a teapot, and you're back to enjoying peace and quiet very soon.
Hopefully the work near you won't last long. Check to see if there are any ordinances concerning the time work can begin.

I don't mind the work starting early, we're up with the dogs at 5:30 anyway. It's just unsettling.
