Largest Landowner in the US??

 - That would be Ted Turner, the former CNN Magnate who just added to his large ranch holdings with his recent purchase of Nonami Plantation near Albany, Georgia, the largest property in his hometown state. That coupled with his ranches in Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and South Dakota put him at now owning over TWO million acres. Largest in California? That would be Red Emmerson of Sierra Pacific Corp, whose timber company now owns app. 1.7 million acres.
