A hyperbinary expansion of a positive integer n is a partition of n into powers of 2 in which each part appears at most twice. In this paper, we consider a generalization of this concept and a certain statistic on the corresponding set of expansions of n. We then define q-generalized m-ary trees whose vertices are labeled by ratios of two consecutive terms within the sequence of distribution polynomials for the aforementioned statistic. When m = 2, we obtain a variant of a previously considered q-Calkin-Wilf tree.
