Sharp results are rare for low-dimensional lattice polymers. We will consider some examples of low-dimensional lattice polymer models for which such results are possible. These models examine the tendency of the polymer to localize near an ''interface'' (for us this will be the x-axis). We will also consider a mapping from the lattice polymer to the tree polymer which may be useful in obtaining results about the lattice polymer, which are usually more difficult to obtain.
