It depends on what the definition of the word does is. Yeah, it makes a sound. Take it to the bank. It makes a sound. You don't think all the other trees are standing there saying "You idiot!! There's nobody here, why'd you make that noise when you fell??"

If you are there you will hear it. If you are not there or close by you will not hear it. Now it depends on the size of the tree also..the small the tree no noise or a soft one it could make. But much larger trees will have a greater noise level.

Of course it does. Trees always make a sound when they fall. The question is, how do u know a tree fell if it didn't make a sound?
