There aren't any pears because the wind blew at a different location. There weren't any pear trees where the wind actually blew!

Pears - Back to the Logic Puzzles
There are a few trees in a garden. On one of them, a pear tree, there are pears (quite logical). But after a strong wind blew, there were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground. How come?

Spoiler for Solution

it's obvious - the owner of the garden, and the trees, was watching the weather chanel, saw the heavy winds approaching, some miles away, and while the strong wind blew, he went outside, and picked all the pears (number completely irrelevant), and took them inside, so they wouldn't get blown off the tree, damaged, etc. The strong wind blew for a while longer, maybe going over the garden, maybe not, then afterwards there are no pears on the tree, or on the ground.
that's how come!

ETA - oops yeah sorry, what logicalist said!

perhaps the pears blew into the branches of an adjacent, shorter tree?
everybody acts as if there is only one tree, but the problem says there are several.

... text deleted ... its winter, there is nothing on trees in winter and there are storms, and animals harvest all food on the ground in the winter for hibernation.

I know is an old one and I haven't read anyone elses posts yet but my guess is; its on a hill.

exactly! Pears fall on the ground and simply rolled down the hill. In that case number of pears is irrelevant.

Perhaps when the pears are ripe enough to eat, the stems let loose, whereby allowing them to fall. But being ripe enough means they are fair game for a pie or a tasty jelly. mmm. you guys think to much.

Is it not possible that the pears were simpily picked during the strong wind (rather foolish i know)
