According to the US 2011 Land Report 100, which ranks the top land owners, John Malone is now America’s biggest individual landowner.

(The 70-year-old cable pioneer and chairman of Liberty Media now owns 2.2 million acres, after purchasing more than 1 million acres of timberland in Maine and New Hampshire earlier this year. I wonder if anyone has told him, you can’t take it with you Mr Malone.)
