Do I need two plum trees or can I use the other citrus trees already planted in the yard for pollination?

It would depend on the variety of plum that you have. Some are self fertile and some are not.

For a tree to cross pollinate they need to be at least in the same genus. Many times they even need to be the same species, but this is not always the case.
