They told me that the life of a red oak was just 30 years - it is actually 200 to 500 years,
did not inform me that it was legally binding, that info was on the back of the form and in about 8 point type

Thank you. If there was misrepresentation by the representative, which you relied on, then you could have a basis to cancel and break the contract. After all, had he properly told you the age of the oak and lack of need, to have it trimmed or cared for, then you would have never entered into this contract. Now, as far as the issue and any language, it needs to be in a conspicuous place. If it was hidden and you could not see it, then you can also have a defense. Overall, if you do not want them to work, you can advise of the same, in writing and not pay. If that happens, the burden would shift to them, to sue you, if they want to claim they were damaged.
