One tree knocked the other down since they were a pair the wind carried them away or possibly there were no trees because there is no ground for them to grow in .

I believe the riddle says "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?"

There were no "pairs" mentioned. My answer is...

Statement : There are few trees in the garden. One of them a pear tree ,there are pears (quite logical). - The statement "there are pears (quite logical)" ,means that there are more than 1 pear tree in the garden.

Statement: "But after a strong wind blew, there were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground.". - the "pear" being referred in the statement now refers to the pear fruit that the pear trees bear. remember the statement says "neither pears ON THE TREE NOR ON THE GROUND".

Statement. How Come? I believe "Having fallen on the ground" , "being blown by the wind" are far too shallow answers to the riddle.

ANSWER: There were only trees but the trees do not have fruits that time. It may not be the season of pear thus, no PEAR FRUITS fell. There were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground because after all, the trees are not bearing fruit."

And that I believe is the trick to the question and the most probable answer :)
