I was taught in college that there is no need to remove it since the roots will grow right through it. I have been to many nurseries where the roots are growing like crazy through the burlap.
The reason they died are more likely from some other reason.
Probably over watering.
We don't remove it neither. Just cut the string the holds the wire up and fold the burlap and wire down
