Critical RWRE on trees and tree-indexed random walks
By Lyons (1990), the critical probability for bond percolation on a tree Γ is pc (Γ) = e−dimΓ and if dim(Γ) > 0 and p > pc , then simple random walk on any infinite cluster is transient (since the cluster must have positive dimension).
On which graphs are all random walks in random environments transient?
