##### Abstract

We define and study a series indexed by rooted trees and with coefficients in $ℚ\left(q\right)$. We show that it is related to a family of Lie idempotents. We prove that this series is a $q$-deformation of a more classical series and that some of its coefficients are Carlitz $q$-Bernoulli numbers.
