It is not unknown for trees to be biennial fruiting. I have a golden delicious which gives a shed load of aplles one year an none the next??

1st always prune/ cut back plum trees in the height of summer, if done in the winter it is then prone to silver leaf or canker disease.

As others have said sonetines you will get the odd year with no fruit, having said that touch wood I have always had fruit every year
