For the second year in a row, John Malone, founder and chairman of Libery Media, is the nation's largest landowner, according to the monthly The Land Report Magazine. The magazine's annual round-up states Malone owns 2.2 million acres, which puts him just ahead of Ted Turner who owns 2 million acres. Malone moved into the number one spot with his purchase of 1 million acres of timber in Maine and New Hampshire. Prior to that purchase, he jumped into the land-buying headlines with his purchase of the famous Bell Ranch, a 290,100-acre operation in New Mexico dating to the 1824 Montoya Land Grant.
