No. 21 Holland Ware
534,000 acres (BACK ON LIST)
In 2010, the Georgia native confirmed to us that he owned more than 500,000 acres, “from Virginia to Texas.” Two years later, we were informed that Mr. Ware’s landholdings had decreased below the threshold for inclusion. Now we know why: They were deeded to a charitable trust he controls. Welcome back, Holland Ware.
