There can be several reasons your seeing more or less blossoms.
First, your tree may be a alternate-flowering cultivator. The tree normally produces many blossoms one year and less the next year.
Drought can cause the tree to stop flower production to help the tree regain it's energy.
Disease can weaken a tree so that it can't support flower production.
Proper pruning.
