Spanish term or phrase: derribados a matarraza
... cientos de arboles derribados a matarraza robados

Can anyone clarify derribados a matarraza? Is it cut down from the roots? or cut down to stumps

Does this accurately convey the meaning of the phrase above? hundreds of trees stolen trees uprooted?
hundreds of stolen uprooted trees?
Thank you.
