I have planted countless trees and have not removed the wire or burlap. Something to keep in mind though is you need to know what type of burlap you have. Some is treated and will not rot away for a much longer period of time and some is not treated. The untreated will rot just fine and also help hold the root ball together when planting it. If it is treated then when the tree is in the hole cut as much away as possible if not all making sure you don't damage the root ball. Try to just use untreated burlap. It is good to remove the wire basket if you can without damaging the plant but not a must.
