‎The first variable Zagreb index of graph $G$ is defined as‎
‎M_{1,\lambda}(G)=\sum_{v\in V(G)}d(v)^{2\lambda}‎,
‎where $\lambda$ is a real number and $d(v)$ is the degree of‎
‎vertex $v$‎.
‎In this paper‎, ‎some upper and lower bounds for the distribution function and expected value of this index in random increasing trees (recursive trees‎,
‎plane-oriented recursive trees and binary increasing trees) are‎
