John William "Tree" Adams (September 22, 1921 – August 20, 1969) was an American football offensive lineman in the National Football League (NFL) for the Washington Redskins from 1945 to 1949. He played college football at the University of Notre Dame.
Adams was born in Charleston, Arkansas as one of ten children. He was considered normal size until he was 10, but then experienced a growth spurt during which he "shot up like a tree". He attended Subiaco Academy in Subiaco, Arkansas, where he played high school football and basketball.
