Both the trees and roof construction present a lot of unknown variability when estimating which antenna will serve best.

Depending on space in the attic, an Antennacraft C290 or better, the C490 would cover the full range of available channels. If you can't get acceptable reception in the attic, the Antennacraft design allows you to re-fold the antenna, making possible to move out to the roof without damage to the antenna.

Use a beginning aim-point of about 50 (compass).

You have plenty of line-of-sight signal so I have high hopes that you'll do well.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
