Porch Post Question

So like many porches that have their posts rotting away, I peaked a bit closer to this one on my front porch and noticed something. There is almost a wood covering on the base, with a pretty good looking 4x4 or larger on the inside. Can that bottom piece be replaced or what are your thoughts?

I actually just looked again, didn't measure, but there are (5) 6x6 posts holding up the porch roof and the porch above. After doing some Googling it looks to be a post skirt. It's only on the corners as well. I didn't know post sleeves could be made from wood. Since I don't want to take the post down, I guess a new two-piece could work.
