The Biggest Landowners In America: The Land Report (PHOTOS)

America's new land barons may surprise you. For the fourth time, media mogul Ted Turner tops The Land Report's annual list of the biggest landowners in America.

While Turner's long been noted for his conservation -- he owns the world's largest private Buffalo herd, The Land Report notes -- there are more than a few ranching and timber companies represented on this year's list. Also making the list: Turner's fellow media titan John Malone, the CEO of Liberty Media, who ranks fifth this year after a purchase of the 290,000-acre Bell Ranch in New Mexico.
