If no one is around to hear it fall does it make a sound. Bets gentlemen please. The answer is yes it does, no ifs or buts. There is no human to hear it but I am certain the little mouse that got crushed heard it.
Naughty, naughty. You just rigged the betting by introducing the mouse. For of course a mouse has auditory sensory equipment, so of course the air compression caused by the falling tree creates a sound. How could there not be? Sound is exactly what happens when the auditory sense encounters air compression. Remove the mouse and I'm happy to place my bet on there being no sound.
