As some said above, 2 pears on the tree, one fell on the ground and one remained on the tree hence no pears (only a pear on the tree and the ground.)
There is a bush below the pear tree in which the pears get caught or a person with a basket standing below it and catching the pears as they fall.

THIS RIDDLE MAKES NO SENSE!
Alright, let me take a crack at it guys.....
The confusing part about this riddle is the word Pear. As you can see above there has been some talk about its ability to be placed FAIRLY in text. Reason being, it is more a PLAY ON WORDS then it is a riddle.
Example = You have a "pear" that you eat. FRUIT...
Example2= You have a "Pair" of socks. PLURAL...
The question states that there are PEARS on the tree, but once the wind came there were no longer PEARS on the tree OR on the ground... HOW COME???
Problem with the question is, if you typed it properly, THERE WOULD BE NO QUESTION. So you HAVE to trick the reader in order for it to HAVE THE PROPER EFFECT. Problem with that is "If this is a Problem Solving Forum, you need to give an Accurate Problem" This riddle is IMPOSSIBLE to TYPE, It must be Spoken in order to work. Other wise the question would be as follows:
There are a Pair of Pears on a Pear tree...lol After a wind blew, there were No Longer a Pair of Pears on the tree... WHY? Of coarse the answer would be: BECAUSE ONLY ONE FELL OFF, LEAVING ONE PEAR ONE THE TREE, AND ONE PAIR ON THE GROUND, ELIMINATING ANY PAIRS OF ANYTHING, ANYWHERE.....
If that doesn't do it, I don't know what to tell ya....
-= Veracity =-
Simply put: at first there were pears (plural) on the tree, namely two. In the end there were no pears (plural) on the tree, nor on the ground, because there was only A PEAR (singular) on the tree, and A PEAR (singular) on the ground.

it was falling.
i agree with this
They have not hit the ground yet, so they are still falling.
The strong wind was a tornado and the pears were still with the tornado.
