Victoria plums

We had to move two established plum trees due to an extension going up at our new property. We carefully removed them and situated them in a new location not to far from the original spot during last winter. Both of them had blossom and new leaf in spring. However, one is doing very well with lots on new leaf growth and fruit, the other has very few leaves but masses of new fruit. We are concerned that all its efforts are being put into fruiting and may kill the tree. Can we strip all or some of the small olive size plums off to help the tree regain its strength, and also what liquid feed would be best? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
