It is reasonable to conclude that when a tree falls in the forrest that it makes a sound [generally when there are observers present the event includes a sound]. But what does that have to do with 'true reality' as you defined it? You defined true reality as 'what is' when there are no observers present. Just exactly how can it be known that 'true reality' isn't something completely different than what we conclude is reasonable? Theoretical models [scientific ones] make predictions [what we expect to observe] wrt natural phenomena. Making predictions which are not falsifiable through empirical means is not science.
