It used to be done to protect from more water penetrating the heartwood and causing the trunk to hollow out all the way to the ground... also to discourage squirrels and various other tree dwelling rodents from creating even faster damage to the heartwood...

It is a good thing to point out: that filling an entire trunk all the way to the ground with a cylinder of concrete may be a little risky...
