We show that if is a group of polynomial growth whose growth rate is at least quadratic, then the compression of the wreath product equals . We also show that the compression of equals and that the compression of (the zero section of , equipped with the metric induced from ) equals . The fact that the Hilbert compression exponent of equals while the Hilbert compression exponent of equals is used to show that there exists a Lipschitz function which cannot be extended to a Lipschitz function defined on all of .
