$3 is probably a bit much for the logs if selling green lumber but paying good for the butts will get you more logs and it will be rare to get a FAS log around here anyway  :)

I've had a few FAS walnut logs here. FAS really is not that hard to come by, it's just that you have to take a lot of knotty walnut to get it. I've always sold it retail, and found that even the junk walnut is worth milling.
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.

2 years ago a neighbor complained that a local sawmill was trying to rip him off. He had two highly valuable walnut trees in his yard that he had cut down. The sawmill owner had offered him $50 each for the trees.  Neighbor thought they should be worth at least 10 times that ! 

I told him I would pick them up and saw them for free if he helped.  When I went to pick them up I found that he had sawed them about 24" above the ground.  They were maybe 14" diameter and mostly sap wood.  We sawed everything and when it was finished, he looked at me and said, "maybe that guy wasn't cheating me like I thought."  I just smiled.
I think that was what is called a teachable moment.

Price for FAS black walnut, tractor trailer load quantity F.O.B sawmill is $4100 per thousand or $4.10 per board foot per the Hardwood Market Report.  That is for rough sawn, kiln dried stock.  It is highly valuable.
Your quoting KD 8/4 FAS. Green 1C in 8/4 is $1.57. Green 4/4 1C is $1.27 and 2A is $.715. Delivered to a mill in KY that tree would do well to average $1 in the log.
