removing forestay

I have to remove the forestay which has no (corrected typo) turnbuckle. I have plenty of halyards, 4 to be exact, to tension the front of the mast. Can I tension the halyards to free the forestay, or do I have to tension the halyard and then loosen the backstay? Do the shrouds have to be loosen at all? Thanks for the advice.
