I was going to go with hair, but maybe the answer is more clever than that.

Hmmm, dont think it's right SCoates, riddle says "the MORE you cut the ends the longer it gets" In my offering you can only cut the ends once.

Yes, but it's still better than hair. For some reason that pops into everyone's mind.

Oo! I've got it. Lines. As in, a line to a movie. The more people cut in line, the longer the line gets. I always hated that in the highschool cafeteria. I was to kind to cut, but no one else was... poor me.

Of course, the question would have to be phrased a little differently for that to work.

I had always understood ditches to have been dug, not cut, so I thought that the answer was a scar.

how about a tunnel? The more you cut at the ends, the longer it becomes.
