DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New names and familiar faces pepper the 2016 Land Report 100 sponsored by LandLeader. Now in its tenth edition, the annual survey of the nation's leading landowners reveals a strategic emphasis on this asset class.
For the sixth year in a row, Liberty Media CEO John Malone and his good friend Ted Turner top the list, with 2.2 million acres and 2 million acres, respectively. California's Emmerson family added 35,000 acres to solidify its hold on No. 3. Stan Kroenke jumped from No. 9 to No. 4 based on his purchase of Texas's historic Waggoner Ranch.
"Each year, the publication of The Land Report 100 stands out like a beacon that illuminates land, landowners, and the stewardship of our country's greatest asset. It is a celebration of all the things that we in the LandLeader network stand for," says Dax Hayden, Managing Director for the LandLeader network.
"America's leading landowners continue to capitalize on the intrinsic value of land as an asset class," says Land Report Editor Eric O'Keefe.
