Walters and Owen had both owned independent straight edge hardcore record labels, Hi-Impact Records and Axtion Packed Records respectively, before starting Jade Tree together in response to the then decline of the genre. Their new label started with many post-hardcore and noise rock bands, and later incorporated emo, punk, melodic hardcore, and experimental groups into their line-up.
Through college, they grew the label into a stable roster by 1995. Bands signed by Jade Tree have released albums which saw regular radio play, including Alkaline Trio, Pedro the Lion, Jets to Brazil, and Joan of Arc.
