Tronc should be translated as tree trunk which is the only meaning it has in French. In English, trunk can mean the main part of a tree, a male's swimsuit or a large packing box made of metal or leather (une malle, in French) which gives us 'the trunk of a car' in North America and 'the boot of the car' in the UK.
Là is an adverb which is used to define a place and usually it means 'there'. It can also be used to Express that and those . Here it is being used to Express 'that'. Ces gens = these people, ces gens-là = those people..ces maisons,= these houses ,,ces maisons-là.= those houses.
