    Frogspawn has thin branches. I used to just break off branches.

    I use cheap cuticle cutters from CVS, aka $20+ coral shears. My suggestion would be to cut at an angle into the colony not across, if you try to cut across the heads like cutting a flower stem it's going to crush them if they're not long enough.

    I'd agree with using either sheers or even a chisel and mallet. Just a couple of light taps should do the trick

    Most people that dont have bandsaws use a mallet and a chisel. But I would imagine a small hand saw would work too
